Nature

Written by Jacob Ibrag

‘Blood is thicker,’ they’ll whisperย as they’ll

try to paint me as just another stranger to keep you

from slipping out of their fingers. And they’re right, I’m an

astronaut seeking black holes and unknown treasure. Stability is

tunnel vision and I want to see everything. You see that too, it’s

in your nature. As much as blood is thicker, you’re meant

to witness more than the inside of their shelter.

  1. Witnessing blood,
    following
    space,

    too

    jump throughout
    a black-hole
    to go
    where
    only
    one does know…

  7. Inspirational, you’ll see, watch out for a pingback. I was looking for an inspiration on how to convey the news re humankinds disregard for nature in general. The ban on hunting in Alaska being lifted also fired my inspiration, thanks to you both.
